I’ve wanted to write a blog post for some time about the pregnancy and birth choices Mr. Wetzel and I are making.

My bosses were really cool, down-to-Earth guys, however, and they wouldn’t mind it if I did personal stuff on my lunch break, or if I stayed late to work on a personal project (on my own dime).
